Ingredients for Chicken and Biscuits

This comfort food is the perfect combination of quick and delicious.

  • Chicken – Use leftover baked chicken or rotisserie chicken for quick prep.
  • Veggies – I use carrots and celery, but you can use any vegetables you have on hand or frozen vegetables. Green beans, peas, or corn are great additions.
  • Sauce – The creamy sauce is similar in flavor to chicken pot pie and it’s really quick to make. Use canned condensed soup or make homemade condensed cream of chicken soup for this recipe.
  • Biscuits – To keep it fast, use canned biscuits – if you’ve got time, you can make your own homemade biscuits.

Skillet Chicken and Biscuits

An easy one-pan dinner loaded with veggies and chicken in a creamy sauce, topped with biscuits and baked until golden.

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 35 minutes

Total Time 55 minutes

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  • In a 12-inch cast iron skillet or oven-proof pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until softened.

  • Add carrot, celery, and chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Cook 4 minutes or veggies are slightly softened.

  • Remove from the heat and add the diced chicken, cream of chicken soup, parsley, and garlic powder. Mix well to combine.

  • Cut each biscuit into quarters and place in the skillet on top of the chicken mixture.

  • Transfer to the oven and bake for 22-25 minutes or until the sauce is bubbly and biscuits are browned.

  • Brush biscuits with additional melted butter if desired and serve warm.

Biscuits can be purchased in the refrigerator section of most grocery stores (any variety will work in this recipe). If you cannot find canned biscuits, you can substitute homemade biscuits in their place. If using homemade biscuits, ensure that the pan is not overcrowded. Extra biscuits can be baked on the side if needed.

  • I find the broth and condensed soup add enough salt but as always, season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Feel free to add 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese to the filling if desired.
  • This can be baked in a 2.5 qt casserole or baking dish, you may need additional baking time.
